Model: The Samsung 770Z5E-S01P is a robust laptop with a slim profile and quality hardware. Design is kept simple and the entire device is themed with a silver brush metal finish. Some may consider the overall weight to be a touch heavy at 2.4 kg, but the solid build quality feels premium to the touch. Display is a 15.6 inch Full HD panel with superb colors and clarity. Its touch screen capability seems somewhat an afterthought due to the lack of precision. The Samsung 770Z5E-S01P runs on Windows 8 with the option to upgrade to Windows 10.
Hardware on the device comes in the form of an Intel Core i7-3635QM quad-core processor at 2.4 GHz, 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, an AMD Radeon HD 9970M GPU with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM and a 1 TB HDD. Audio quality is acceptable with the stereo setup and compliments the device as an overall multimedia platform. Other features found on the Samsung 770Z5E-S01P are Bluetooth, an HDMI out, a USB 2.0 port and an Ethernet port. Samsung could have definitely included more features for the price but the device makes up for this by sporting a large capacity Lithium Polymer battery with up to 8 hours of usage.
